A vision of the future of Holt

A Town Center district along Cedar Street

Town_center_Market_Node_PreviewA study that examines the Cedar Street corridor from Willoughby Road in the north to College Road in the south began earlier this year. Officials have gathered input on the future of Holt’s busiest street, which will also indirectly affect the rest of the triangle from Holt Road to Aurelius Road.

Delhi Township hired engineering firm McKenna Associates to conduct a study of what Cedar Street would look like with cosmetic and structural changes, such as having fewer lanes and adding parallel parking.

The idea is to create a sense of place with an identity, a “downtown” district that is Holt. The project, called “Realize Cedar,” is attempting to lay the groundwork for a future that helps local businesses want to stay and attracts new businesses that residents would like to see.

The project is a vision, not a construction plan. The township is looking to develop a consensus on how to move forward with the development of its main corridor.
